Book Synopsis

Amoral, cunning, ruthless, and instructive, this multi-million-copy New York Times bestseller is the definitive manual for anyone interested in gaining, observing, or defending against ultimate control – from the author of The Laws of Human Nature.

In the book that People magazine proclaimed “beguiling” and “fascinating,” Robert Greene and Joost Elffers have distilled three thousand years of the history of power into 48 essential laws by drawing from the philosophies of Machiavelli, Sun Tzu, and Carl Von Clausewitz and also from the lives of figures ranging from Henry Kissinger to P.T. Barnum.
Some laws teach the need for prudence (“Law 1: Never Outshine the Master”), others teach the value of confidence (“Law 28: Enter Action with Boldness”), and many recommend absolute self-preservation (“Law 15: Crush Your Enemy Totally”). Every law, though, has one thing in common: an interest in total domination. In a bold and arresting two-color package, The 48 Laws of Power is ideal whether your aim is conquest, self-defense, or simply to understand the rules of the game.

  • (Listen) read the laws

    By samgawdess
    So far I’m comprehending the laws as pertains to everyday life, the backstory of each law seems to be straightforward until you really go through the full chapters. It’s almost as if human nature itself is defined by these laws, and in fact it is true. So far a great read, once I’ve completed the whole book I’ll try to remember to come back and update this review.

  • Intriguing

    By Mobell2003
    Very valuable information and lessons to learn in this book. I will say though it does get repetitive at times. Some rules although all valuable in different senses seemed stretched or repetitive. I personally would recommend it to anyone who wants to be more strategic in life
  • It was alright

    By iiOgRobloxian...ii
    I felt like more of the beginning had more relatable things, there were a lot of old stories so I think that’s what made it less relatable and not giving a lot of information.
  • Great book

    A just read
  • Sloppy Production. D- Work.

    By 19762xcc
    This product is miserably proofread, if it was proofread at all. Some paragraphs, especially the indented paragraphs, will have so many misspellings that a reader has to pause to figure out what is intended. One has to wonder how a publisher can be so sloppy & invest so little, & still expect the consumer to pay top dollar.
  • Simply amazing
